IT'S A BOY!

Today at 4:25 the call came....
It is 4:25 I was sitting out by the pool just getting ready to get in. The neighbor had just left and my kids were swimming. I sit on the edge to slide in and just then the phone rings. I think I will see who it is, but I am not going to answer it. It says 703.... oh my I think that is America World, I start crying. I answer the phone and it is Terra she asked me how I was, I ask is this "the call" she says yes...
I am yelling at the kids get out of the pool, on the deck, no off the deck, close up the pool, it's "the call" I am just crying and going crazy! The neighbor hears me and thinks that someone got hurt in the pool, she comes running. The kids are yelling it's our referral. I am apologizing to Terra, I am running in the house crying, shaking, and my phone is about to die. I find another phone calm down and listen to all the information. I called my husband on the cell phone to tell him (still crying), he thinks that something bad has happened because he hears all this crying. So at this point the kids are yelling what is it boy or girl? How old? So I tell them all Boy and he was one in May. So Grandma now has 7 Grandkids which 3 have birthdays in June, she asked me to make sure this one is not a June b-day... Grandma how is May 27th? I then wait 25 minutes until Tom gets home so we can all look at his picture. I can't wait to show you all his picture. He is the cutest baby ever. He has big beautiful eyes and cheeks that are the cutest ever. It just makes you want to pick him and love on him.
There is a slim chance that we could make it through court before the closure. Please pray for him that we can get to him soon. We know that God won't leave him in Ethiopia a day longer than he needs to be there. We are off to celebrate and make more phone calls. Thank you for all your prayers.
